Kevin,I know just what you mean. My tpf happened on Sept 17th and I’m only recently getting more comfortable in bed. I sleep with my brace on so I don’t accidentally twist my knee but it’s getting stronger as I walk more and I’m looking forward to being able to move more easily in bed. I also have discomfort behind my knee – presumably the hardware! My advice is to just stay with it – sleeping does get easier.
Best wishes, Sue
